The creation of the Messerschmitt Bf-110G came about because the Me 210 that was
meant to replace it turned out to be a failure. The main difference between the “G” and the
“F” variants was the improved engine in the “G”. Physically it was about the same as the
old engine which meant they only had to strengthen the air frame to handle the increased
weight of the DB 605 engine. The new engine allowed for heavier payloads such as more
powerful guns, rockets, increased fuel loads and larger radar antennae.

The new Bf-110G-2 was first introduced to the war zone in January 1943 when it arrived in
the USSR. Over the course of 1943 278 Bf-110G-2s were sent to the Eastern Front.
Within a month of arriving the aircraft were pressed into action when the Germans were
driven out of Stalingrad. With the lack of Soviet heavy bombers for the Bf-110 to tackle
they were assigned to ground attacks in an effort to slow Soviet tanks and troops
advancing westward. By the end of 1943 all Bf-110s were withdrawn from the USSR.
